So our party was shrinking.
And then for reasons unknown, I had an allergic reaction to my towel when I stepped out of the shower and dried my face off Sunday morning. In less than 30 seconds my face began to burn and itch and sting and it turned all red and got all.... well, it looked like I had 100's of zits popping up. Not fully up, but coming. You know the type. The type you'd get when you were 16 or 17 and had a hot date for prom and you'd wake up with a red spot on your chin or the end of your nose. And it burned! And felt like 1,000's of bees were stinging me. It was horrible.
So I called off the Mother's Day celebration completely and hid in my room. Alone, with just my knitting and Kindle for company. Honestly, it wasn't a bad way to spend the day. Instead of having the BBQ my brother-in-law was going to bring, I ate a bag of chips for lunch. A giant bag. No fear of starvation here! And my husband brought fried chicken home for dinner. And my daughter made a cheesecake.
The cheesecake was delicious and frankly, I'm okay with skipping the Mother's Day thing this year. It meant more cheesecake for me!

And what did I knit while hiding in my room? Rambling Rows. I can't stop knitting on this thing! Before casting on, I'd set a self-imposed schedule of knitting five blocks a month. It's only been 14 days and I'm already on block 15. I am way ahead of schedule. I don't get to say that very often!
